Power Tools for JavaScript

How do we gain confidence that our application works reliably?

Tiny applications might not have this problem. But as applications grow in functionality and size, we need methods that help us gain that confidence.

We will explore a few tools for JavaScript to help you develop elegant application code that you can be confident in. In particular, we'll look at test frameworks such as Jasmine, static code analysers such as JSHint to help reveal bugs in your JavaScript, and Grunt to bring these tasks into a repeatable, automated build process.

    Hello all,

    First, I've posted the slides for last Thursday's talk at: http://petermunro.org/power-tools-for-javascript/

    Second, there's an evening course, "JavaScript from the Ground Up", intended to ground you in the fundamentals of JavaScript. It's taking place over 6 weeks, on Monday evenings, 7pm-9pm at The Rye Institute. Details at: http://petermunro.org/Courses/javascript-beginners.html. Contact me on[masked] or [masked] for more details or to book.

    Third, there's a workshop "Build a Synthesiser with JavaScript and HTML5 Audio", in Dublin, this Saturday. You'll build a working synthesiser in JavaScript. How cool is that?! More info: http://petermunro.org/Courses/html5synthesiser.html

      Hi Joseph, if I manage to keep to time we should be done within 40 mins, plus questions. Unless of course you want to join us for a drink afterwards. :)
